Artistic Meeting revealed an terrible lot of element in regards to the upcoming Immortal Empires marketing campaign (opens in new tab) for Whole Struggle: Warhammer 3 yesterday, together with a little bit bit that it could not have meant to. Sharp-eyed followers watching the Q&A session picked up on what they consider are the names of 4 factions that shall be launched for the sport as DLC.
The related bit may be seen at across the 9:55 mark of the video embedded above, throughout a section by which lead designer Mitchell Heastie discusses victory situations whereas scrolling by means of totally different lists of required targets: Capturing coastal areas, razing settlements, destroying factions, controlling provinces, that kind of factor.
The dime dropped when he received to “Domination Marketing campaign Victory” situations, which features a lengthy checklist of factions that have to be destroyed. There’s one thing like 60 of them in complete by my fast depend, which is affordable as a result of Immortal Empires will merge the factions and maps from all three video games within the Whole Struggle: Warhammer trilogy right into a single, large marketing campaign. However 4 of the factions within the checklist have by no means appeared in any of these video games:
- The Ecstatic Legions
- The Fecundites
- Legion of the Gorequeen
- Puppets of Misrule
This is a nonetheless from the video the place the faction names may be seen:
It is attainable that these are merely unannounced factions, however Artistic Meeting has already revealed the brand new Chaos factions and so the sensation amongst followers on Reddit (opens in new tab) is that these teams usually tend to be launched as DLC.
In fact, Warhammer followers being Warhammer followers, there’s already loads of hypothesis about who shall be heading every of those factions: Niheli21 (opens in new tab) pegs it as Azazel, the Prince of Damnation (opens in new tab) for the Ecstatic Legions, Festus the Leechlord (opens in new tab) for the Fecundites, the Gorequeen Valkia the Bloody (opens in new tab), and Vilitch the Curseling (opens in new tab) for the Puppets of Misrule. It is all very Warhammer.
Artistic Meeting hasn’t commented on the leaked factions at this level, however I’ve reached out for remark and can replace if I obtain a reply. Whole Struggle: Warhammer 3 – Immortal Empires shall be out on August 23.
